Badge Buying for the greater good?

(1/2) > >>

Deose:
I'm curious in what other people will think is a better option to help "the greater good" for someone who wants 4 days + PN

1) Buy only 4 days during returning registration, so that for open reg, the person can get back into the sale with the option to buy 3 more people badges.

2) Buy all 4 days + PN night during returning registration, so that during open registration, no one has to stop and buy them a 1 day badge, and thus have the option to buy someone else a 4-5 day badge.

Thoughts?

I spent most of my years only doing 4 days so I could help out in both sales, which ended up saving quite a few folks, but the chances of getting PN in the second sale were always much harder. I didnt usually want PN, so no spot was lost, but if someone relied on getting it in the second sale it would just take away a spot that could be used to get a full event pass for someone else (one of the 3 spots your allowed to buy for upon purchase screen entry, I mean)

If you want PN, and you have the opportunity it buy it in returning registration, do so! It is extremely difficult to get PN in open registration. Don't ever count o being able to buy it later.

Even if you have PN from returning registration, you can always help ut during open registration by running codes for others. Every year our group has people who got 4 days in returning registration (and are happy with that) who cannot be there for open registration. They pass their codes on to others in our buying group, so everyone cal still help.

That's true and a good way to do "both" in a way.

I've always been a 4 day person, not buying PN to help buy tickets for others, but this year PN would have been nice to have and am considering getting it going forward, but got stuck with the problem of "what's best for the group". I really like your solution!

accelerate:
I once gave up my slot and opportunity to buy PN to help others. I got 4-day during Returning Reg, and I got in really quick during Open, but I decided to help my friends instead. So the irony is they got PN and I didn't, even though I got 4-day months before they did.

Honestly, if it happens again, I'd do the same. I'll always give up a (half) day to help others out.
